Please help, this is my second Rover I've had the same problems with.
When I got my 1st Rover the steering wheel wasn't centred, I took it to a
garage who said the tracking needed doing, I paid nearly £30 to have it
adjusted. On collecting my car, I noticed the steering wheel STILL wasn't in
the centre and the car now steered to the left also. I took it back several
times and they still didnt fix it.
I now own my 2nd Rover which is the same, a 1992 214Sli. Again. the steering
wheel wasn't in the centre but it did steer straight. I took it to the same
place and ended up with the same results - steering wheel not centred and
vehicle veering left. I decided to get a 2nd opinion and took it elsewhere,
they said the tracking was out and it needed doing, on paying another £30 to
have the front tracking done, it was still not correct. They had a road-test
and confirmed that it still wasn't right. They checked the rear traling arm
and it appears the trailing arm bushes were split and perrishing - I changed
these myself and took the car back to the place where I got the 2nd opinion
from and they did a 4-wheel alignment check charging me £58. - I took the
car less than 30 yds down the road and guess what??? The steering wheel was
still off-set to the right and the vehicle veered left. So - £88 lighter and
I still had the same problem. I rang them up, told them "I have paid £88 to
have my wheel-alignment done and it wasn't fixed DO SOMETHING!" - They asked
me to take it in, they tried again free of charge and still it does the same
thing. I was told to wait 4 days or so until the new bushes have settled in
and go back and try again. (FOC)
That is 4 days from now - what shall I be expecting in 4 days?
Can anyone offer advice??
